One of my questions was closed for being "opinion-based". In the help center, it says that answers to opinion-based questions don't fit the format of the community because answers "will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than on facts, references, or specific expertise."
As it's titled, "How much does it cost to raise a child for the average American family?" can be answered with an empirical number.
I believe I answered the question with a wealth of objective data, drawn from a US government body, which I cited and linked in the post. The sample for the study consisted of 30,000+ households and was weighted to reflect the U.S. population of interest by using BLS weighting methods.
Could anyone provide clarification on what part of this question is opinion-based and how I might be able to edit it so it better fits community guidelines? Thank you :)
